Dawn of Another Beautiful Day April 5, 2014
Hate to repeat myself, but sunrise is so beautiful at Hawks Cay Marina, I have to share it with you again.

It's your choice, but be sure to include Hawks Cay Marina in your plans.
Still Time to Make Memories April 5, 2014
The Staff at Hawks Cay Marina thanks all our boating friends who have already made this a spring to remember. YOU still have time to make your own Hawks Cay Memories. Big yachts, small cruisers and everything in between have visited our beautiful Destination Resort Marina this spring, but we'll make room for your boat. Plan now to make your cruising dreams come true.
Not a Bad Office to Have! March 27, 2014
It's 7am, and this is the "office" the Charter Fleet at Hawks Cay Marina has to go to as they prep for a great day of fishing. Sunrise over the flats to the east of Hawks Cay. Not a bad way to start the day. Come join us for great spring fishing with Tarpon highlighting the Backcountry, and early Mahi Mahi beginning to show up Offshore. The Reef provides bountiful catches of delicious Snapper this time of year, so you can't go wrong any where you fish.
Morning Promises Great Fun On, Above, or Under the Water March 22, 2014
After the Charter fishing boats depart the docks at 7:30 each morning, our Divers, Snuba enthusiasts, Snorkelers, Kayakers, Kiteboarders, Parasailers, and all other water enthusiasts hit the docks at Hawks Cay Marina to prep for adventures on, above, or under the water with Dive Duck Key, Sundance Watersports and oTHEer BOARDSPORTS. After all, what are you in the Keys for? Come celebrate the water with us!
